ORTHODONTICS

DEPARTMENT OF ORTHODONTICS & DENTOFACIAL ORTHOPEDICS

INTRODUCTION OF DEPARTMENT
  • Orthodontia, also known as orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, is a specialty field of dentistry.
  • It is the oldest branch of dentistry and was established by the efforts of pioneering orthodontists such as Edward Angle and Norman William Kingsley.
  • The specialty deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws
VISION

To excel in the field of orthodontics with modern technologies to achieve dentofacial esthetics, structural balance and functional efficiency.

MISSION
  • To integrate in depth knowledge of biological and mechanical principles to diagnose, plan treatment and to deliver comprehensive orthodontic services of highest standards.
  • Application of advanced diagnostic procedures in clinical sciences to provide accurate treatment planning resulting in harmonious occlusion, function and esthetics.
  • Teaching and hands on applications of ultra modern equipment both to undergraduate & postgraduate students which makes them competent in this ever growing evidence based dentistry.
  • To promote and encourage enthusiasm among faculty to excel in education, clinical competance and research.
  • To be recognised as a speciality center with advanced innovative trends in orthodontic care for dentofacial enhancemen
